After the controversy with Andy Gray at the back end of last season it was inevitable that he would be cut from the FIFA 12 commentary roster due to the nature of his indiscretion. But the whole situation for EA was far from ideal because Mr Gray and his partner in crime Martin Tyler were embedded in the FIFA franchise having invested hours upon hours of lines and quips, over the last few years.

You can listen to the guys introducing themselves HERE.
UPDATE: Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend have been confirmed as the second English commentary team available in FIFA 12, so you now have choice between a brand new duo or some old FIFA World Cup 2010 friends, brilliant.
Huge news this, happy with the choice EA have made?
